That's OK for now. Ideally, Qt Creator would use 
RunEnvironment::runTarget to run the application. But the infrastructure 
isn't fit for that yet.
So enhancing the API is in order IMO.

I wonder why the QT_INSTALL_LIBS part is needed. This should be done by 
the setupRunEnvironment script in the Qt.core module. There seems to be 
something amiss there. Not in your code - in the plugin or qbs itself.
